Join the Library
Library membership is free for everyone!
If you would like to become a full library member the best way to do it is to visit your local library with proof of your name and address.
If you are a Worcestershire resident, you can join instantly online with a Digital library membership. This gives you free access to eBooks, eAudiobooks, eMagazines and other digital library resources and can be easily upgraded to full library membership when you are able to take proof of your name and address to a library building.
There are four main types of library membership.
Full Library Membership
To get a Full Library Membership you will have to visit a library and provide proof of your name (photographic evidence such as passport or driving license) and address (recent utility bill etc) to a member of library staff.
Digital Library Membership
Digital Membership is available to all Worcestershire residents and provides instant access to free eBooks, eAudiobooks and eMagazines and a wealth of other online resources. You will be able to use your membership online straightway and reserve a book to pick up from the library of your choice.
Children's Library Membership (0-12 years)
Children aged between 0 and 12 years can sign up for Full Library Membership with a parent or guardian by visiting a library in person. The parent or guardian must also have full library membership in order to act as a guarantor for all loans made on child’s account.
Children and teenagers aged 8 to 16 years can join online using the Digital Membership form and get instant access to the Digital Library and eResources.
Young People's Library Membership (13-19 years)
Young people aged under 16 can get Full Library Membership, which includes access to computers and the internet, by visiting their local library with a parent or guardian who can act as a guarantor. Alternatively, they can join online using the Digital Membership form and get instant access to the Digital Library and eResources.
